I have always struggled with the concept of having a hobby. It seemed there was nothing I enjoyed enough to "officially qualify" (what is that?) as a hobby. But now I guess I found one - my garden!
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the box garden Bob built for me! I'm documenting and taking good notes so I'll know what works and what doesn't. Today I made a few changes.
I harvested all my spinach yesterday. It is just getting too hot for it and I wanted to enjoy it before the heat made it bitter. It was delicious! Next year I will plant it earlier (I may do a fall planting this year). So that left open a few more spaces. I planted onions (yes, late too but we'll see what happens) and butternut squash. I love butternut squash in the fall and winter.
|My basil is still alive but I think our soaring temps will put an end to it.|
|Yellow squash & spaghetti squash are doing well.|
|I have 4 tomato plants (2 pictured). They are doing GREAT!|
|Three beautiful little tomatoes!|
|Yukon Gold potatoes are growing like crazy.|
|It won't be long before the center trellis fills up! It's 6 feet high so that should be sufficient.|
|The tomatoes are on the right side, 2 on each level.|
|I have some shorter corn that was planted by seed. Hoping the seed corn will be "knee high by 4th of July"!|
